King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

Acclaimed filmmaker Guy Ritchie brings his dynamic style to the epic fantasy action adventure “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.” Starring Charlie Hunnam in the title role, the film is an iconoclastic take on the classic Excalibur myth, tracing Arthur’s journey from the streets to the throne. When the child Arthur’s father is murdered, Vortigern (Jude Law), Arthur’s uncle, seizes the crown. Robbed of his birthright and with no idea who he truly is, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, his life is turned upside down and he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy…whether he likes it or not.

Scott’s Take

I am looking forward to this King Arthur origin story based on the fact that Guy Ritchie is directing. It should be FUN!

Steve’s Take

I wasn’t very high on this one going into the screening and it didn’t disappoint. It was just as bad as I thought it was going to be. It now sits at a 27% on Rotten Tomatoes after 136 reviews. That being said, it also has a 76% audience rating. I am with the audience most of the time, but I can’t do it this time around.

Snatched

After her boyfriend dumps her on the eve of their exotic vacation, impetuous dreamer Emily Middleton (Amy Schumer) persuades her ultra-cautious mother, Linda (Goldie Hawn) to travel with her to paradise. Polar opposites, Emily and Linda realize that working through their differences as mother and daughter – in unpredictable, hilarious fashion – is the only way to escape the wildly outrageous jungle adventure they have fallen into. Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn star in the new comedy adventure SNATCHED, which also features Ike Barinholtz (“Neighbors”), Wanda Sykes (“Bad Moms”) and Joan Cusack (“Working Girl”).

Scott’s Take

I LOVE Amy Schumer, so naturally, I am going to devour everything she throws out there. Sign. Me. Up.

Steve’s Take

Scott loved Tranwreck and told me I would also. We are usually on the same page when it comes to flicks, so I made it a blind buy. Not cool. Steve is not an Amy Shumer fan. I’m staying away from this one. Are you curious about this one on Rotten Tomatoes? I bet you were. 36% critic and 29% audience. Yup.
